    Is there a good boat ramp to launch at in the Muskingum River in Marietta?

    Thank you

    I'm not sure how good it is, but if you get off of 77 at the six mile marker (S.R. 821,I think) take that to S.R. 60, it dead ends at 60, then turn left toward Marietta and look for the signs, not too far after you turn onto 60 it will be on your right. There is also a real nice ramp in Williamstown, WVA., you can see it as you cross the Ohio on your right. This ramp is directly across the Ohio from the mouth of the Muskingum. The Williamstown bridge is almost in downtown Marietta, if you get off of 77 onto S.R. 7 south you can't miss it. There is also one at Marietta on the Ohio I believe, but I have never seen or used it.

    The first ramp I gave directions to is the fairground ramp I believe.
